She was so wrong. I went to the boarding gate in Dallas and the lady there ripped my ticket up and said I couldn’t board without a Covid test taken within 72 hours. ...

NUVIA raises $240M from Mithril to make climate-ready enterprise chips

Climate change is on everyone’s minds these days, what with the outer Bay Area on fire, orange skies above San Francisco, and a hurricane season that is bearing down on the East Coast with alacrity (and that’s just the United States in the past two weeks). A major — and growing — source of those emissions is data centers, the cloud infrastructure that powers most of our devices and experiences. That’s led to some novel ideas, such as Microsoft’s underwater data center Project Natick, which just ...

PTSD sports treatment for veterans

Bill Geiger’s wife had reached her breaking point. After the Army MP returned home from deployments to Guantanamo Bay and Iraq, he had become a different person, removing himself into depression and often screaming at their children. And in the fog of readjustment to life at home, somehow he’d missed that there was a serious problem. “My wife left an email open on our computer to our pastor saying, ‘If I knew he was going to be like this, I’d never have married him,’” Geiger says. “It was the...

Phoenix light rail trip planner

Phoenix is a sprawling city. A zigzag of freeways loop through and around the desert metropolis, and it’s all too easy to spend more time driving, not to mention parking and fighting over directions, than doing.

Best pizza restaurants in Phoenix

Phoenix is a slice of pizza heaven. Yes, that Phoenix, the one where it’s nearly hot enough in the summer to cook said pizza on the sidewalk. While Chicago and New York were dueling it out for pizza supremacy, Phoenix was quietly building an army of pizza joints that could dethrone Naples. We’re talking true temples of dough, some stylish, some artisan, and some traditional. While there’s no “Phoenix-style” or even “Arizona-style” pizza, you can find places that have perfected just about ever...
